I think I’ve mentioned vernix before. It’s the stuff that babies have on their skin to keep them from getting all pruney in the womb. It serves a protective function inside, but seems to do some on the outside as well. Our doula sent us this article, so I thought I’d share it.
The article is some commentary, but mostly it’s links and abstracts for a bunch of scientific papers written about vernix and what it does. Very cool stuff, for sure. Thanks for reading!
